Witch: A Magickal Journey
A Hip Guide to Modern Witchcraft
by Fiona Horne

Witch: A Magickal Journey In Witch, Fiona Horne takes us on a personal journey through modern witchcraft, sharing her challenges and triumphs of spirit, and introducing us to fun ways of practicing. If you have been too serious about witchcraft, this book will lighten your approach, and teach you to enjoy working with nature and your own growing skills.

Horne discovered witchcraft as a young woman, who had always loved nature and being outdoors. Involving nature in her spiritual practice made sense and as she grew in her practice, she found fulfillment and strength. Witchcraft became more than her religion, it became her cause, as she began teaching others and publicly demonstrating what witchcraft was to her. Witch is a warm and fun trip, as we look inside Horne's magickal cabinet, meet her familiar - her pet snake Lulu, and take part in her rituals. She very openly shows us how she has learned to love herself, and offers advice to those struggling with feelings of self doubt and low confidence. She shares tales of difficulty, often with a warning to others to avoid making some of the same mistakes she or her friends did, and she shares humorous tales that remind us all to simply enjoy our lives and our inner magick.

The book covers many of the more practical aspects of witchcraft. There are sections on creating and conducting spells, finding your familiar, creating an altar, going skyclad in ritual, hexing and psychic protection, recipes for herbal cosmetics, divination, sex, drugs, computers and the internet, deities, and witches' holy days. Lists of resources both online and off, are also provided. Her instructions are clear and encouraging.

There will likely be some witches who dislike Horne's very easy and somewhat irreverent attitude. I found it enjoyable, and I honestly read the book cover to cover in just a couple of days. Witch doesn't claim to be an instruction manual for deep spiritual thought or enlightenment, it is after all, one woman's personal journey. I wouldn't recommend it as anyone's first guide to witchcraft, and certainly not the only one, but I do feel it has its place as a witch's autobiography and expression of her craft. Witch welcomes young people to witchcraft with warmth and honesty, and it is a good addition to the modern magickal bookshelf.
